Where to find power knob for Lakewood model 101 box fan Answered

I have a Lakewood model 101 AB box fan that I had in storage for several years and when I took it out to use it, it is missing the rear back power/speed selection knob. It is 1" diam. and needs a small slot in order for it to attach to the post sticking out from the motor. I have spent quite a bit of time searching for this or an appropriate universal knob and I recently learned Lakewood went out of business several years ago. Any ideas on where I can find this elusive part so that I can use my fan? Thank you very much for your help.

I'd probably put a pair of the mini vice grips on it.

Or use a hole saw to cut a disc out of wood or plastic. Force this over the post so it grabs it, or heat plastic disc before forcing it over the post, or epoxy it.

Thank you very much! Will definitely make my own as you suggested.
